John Galliano making his fashion comeback at Oscar de la Renta

John Galliano is believed to be making his return to fashion with a temporary residency at Oscar de la Renta.

The designer will reportedly set up camp at de la Renta's New York studio, where he will spend the next three weeks preparing for his upcoming show at New York Fashion Week.

Speaking about his decision to invite Galliano, who was unceremoniously sacked from Dior in 2011 after making anti-Semitic remarks in a Parisian cafe, de la Renta said he had "worked hard on his recovery."

He told WWD: "John and I have known each other for many years and I am a great admirer of his talent.

“He has worked long and hard on his recovery and I am happy to give him the opportunity to reimmerse himself in the world of fashion and reacclimate in an environment where he has been so creative.”

Galliano was axed as creative director of Christian Dior following his anti-Semitic tirade in a cafe. He later appeared in court in France over the incident, where he was fined 6,000 euros after being found guilty of giving public insults on account of race.

The designer has lived quietly since then, only returning to the spotlight to design Kate Moss' wedding dress to Jamie Hince in 2011.

Expressing his gratitude at the de la Renta opportunity, Galliano said he felt "humbled" by the faith and support of his fellow designer.
